Who is this training for?

This training is aimed at Frontline Workers supporting people experiencing Homelessness across the North East. This is a free training event, open to any frontline staff working in the voluntary, statutory and public sectors.

Why do I need this training?

Research has shown that half of people experiencing street homelessness have an acquired brain injury, yet there is very little information in the homelessness sector about the issue.

What will I learn?

  • Basic anatomy

  • How damage may occur

  • The effects of injury to the brain

  • How to support people affected by brain injury

  • The session will last approximately 3 hours.

Who is delivering the training?

Leigh Andrews from Change Communication is collaborating with the Be the Change Frontline Network Frontline Network to provide free training on brain injury awareness to homelessness services.

How much will it cost?

The project is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund, making the training free to you. Resources will be shared on the day to help you make the most of your learning!
